Stacey Blase, PhD
I am committed to providing high quality, scientifically informed treatment to help each of my clients build new behaviors to achieve their goals. I believe that effective therapy is a collaborative process that combines the skills of a trained therapist with the individual needs of each client. My aim is to help you identify the values that define your life, set goals according to those values, and develop the skills needed to achieve those goals.
WHO I WORK WITH
There are times we struggle with unwanted thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I offer therapy to those whose internal conflicts are affecting their daily lives. You may be struggling with thoughts and feelings that lead to poor choices and self-destructive behaviors. As result, your relationships, job and family may suffer as well. In addition to the emotional distress, these thoughts and behaviors impact all aspects of life, including personal goals, relationships, careers, and family life. Have you begun to withdraw from friends and family? Stopped pursuing your interests and things you used to enjoy? Perhaps you’re stuck in patterns of behaviors and thoughts that seem to make things worse and not better. For those of you experiencing overwhelming emotions, there are evidence-based, compassionate therapies that can help you cope effectively and take positive steps towards your goals.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in New York and Connecticut with extensive training in and experience using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based psychological treatments, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Parent Management Training (PMT). My specialties include the assessment and treatment of individuals with issues related to depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, stress, relationship difficulties and parenting challenges, and problems with impulse-control.
I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University and my master’s degrees and PhD from Yale University. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at Montefiore Medical Center, where I stayed on to become a licensed Attending Psychologist and Assistant Professor before moving to Guilford Psychological Services in 2017. Schedule an appointment. I’m here to help.
